Cognitive Work Analysis (CWA) is a promising qualitative empirical method for domain analysis (Fidel and Pejtersen 2004). In this lightning paper we report some of the results of a recent study of the organizational environment and knowledge organization structures of a boutique human resources consulting firm (Marchese 2012).

This article presents the results of an analysis of partisan attitudes towards war for the Korean, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan Wars. In total, 85 surveys conducted by the Gallup Organization starting in August 1950 (near the beginning of the Korean War) and ending May 2011 (recent events from the Afghanistan War) were analyzed. Previous research of public opinion during wartime indicates how powerful the influence of political party affiliation is in the United States on individuals' war attitudes, with several scholars suggesting that most people follow the cues provided by their most salient political reference group-their own party. Therefore, they are inclined to follow their President's lead no matter the Administration's policy on foreign affairs. There has been evidence to suggest that the earlier wars in modern America, the wars in Korea and Vietnam, that this was in fact true. In the later wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, two wars closely linked to the "War on Terror," this did not occur. During times of regime change, the shift in power from a Republican Bush regime to a Democratic Obama regime has indicated that citizens are no longer following their party cue and in fact are more likely to reject the policies of their own party leaders. The evidence in this research points out that partisans can no longer be thought of as followers, which may suggest that leaders can no longer rely on their own party base for support on war policies. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
